Molymods now available in the Chemistry Library!

At a recent meeting of the Committee for the Library and Scholarly Communication, undergraduate student representatives told us that using the molymod in the library had been useful, so please could they have some more?

We thought this was a great idea, so a couple of sets were ordered, one of which is now available to use by anyone in the library.

It was purchased from the Part IA Chemistry teaching lab, so you may be familiar with it: the Orbit Organic and Inorganic Individual Set which you can use:

to make models of many molecules and compare different structures including saturated hydrocarbons, unsaturated hydrocarbons, cyclic hydrocarbons, functional groups in organic chemistry, benzene, polymerization, optical isomerism, simple inorganic molecules and complex ions

It contains 240 atoms, and 200 bonds.

Another set is on order, the molymod Inorganic/Organic (Student) Set. It contains 52 atoms, supplied in a 4- compartment box.

Please ask a member of library staff if you want to use one of these sets. They are kept in the Library Office and will have to be signed for, and cannot be removed from the library.

Let us know how you get on using the molymods and which you prefer; perhaps even make us something!
